    first issue hit with a bang. Would this be considered Western Noir? I think it might....

    I haven't gotten my comics yet, but I would assume it was good if you felt the need to make an official thread on the first issue. So, what happened?

    if you're a fan of 100 bullets, you'll enjoy this. Azzerello is in top form, the art is very similar to Risso's, and Patricia Mulvihill is doing the colors

    thus far, it's set in the days just after the civil war has ended, and discouraged confederate veterans are still at odds with the controlling Union soldiers

    I'm not sure I get why this book is so highly anticipated beyond Azz's name, since I haven't been keeping up with much comic news. The first issue was pretty good, though. It would've been nice to see a different kind of art than just another would-be Risso with Azz's writing, but similarities in style notwithstanding, the art was decent. I'll be getitng the next issue.

    Finally read it. Could done without the use of the N-Word, but, I suppose it added to the realism of what life was like at the time. Overall, good first ish. Definatly picking up the next one.

    it's about a confederate veteran in the days after the civil war. I'd expect ALOT more use of that word in this series, Anubis

    This was a great issue, although the twist (for lack of a better term) at the end was pretty predictable. I also felt like this was sort of a waste of an issue. While well-written, it just seemed overall unnecessary. All that really happened was that the main character introduced and all that was really conveyed is that he has a shady past, no one really likes him, including the army, and he loves his wife. Nevertheless, it was good, and I'll be sticking with it.

    Well, the ending was totally hot, so that's something, at least. :)

    True, nudity makes most things okay.

    Yeah, that career would have sky-rocketed if it weren't for Howard Stern.
